Join Capital City Village members, volunteers and guests online Tuesday, July 21 at 2pm for "The Science of the Aging Brain", presented by Dr. Rebecca Deason.
 
Dr. Deason will review the latest research on the aging brain. Topics will include the changes that occur in the brain as it ages and how these changes can impact memory and cognition. We will also talk about the differences between healthy aging and dementia, with an emphasis on lifestyle factors associated with successful aging. This session will provide an overview of current scientific research, including new data related to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as practical tips for aging well.
